Gaza genocide

The Gaza Strip is reeling from Israel’s military campaign, with the southern city of Rafah witnessing a fresh airstrike ahead of a looming ground offensive by the regime. Nearly a dozen Palestinians were killed and several others injured in the attack targeting two residential buildings. Rafah is hosting some 1.5 million Palestinians taking shelter from attacks in other parts of Gaza. Israel has intensified its air raids on the city while it’s preparing for a ground assault as well. The planned attack has sparked fears of a wider tragedy in Gaza where Palestinians are already grappling with a dire situation. Israel launched its war on Gaza in early October, killing nearly 28,700 Palestinians. Most of those killed are women and children.

Attacks on hospitals

The Israeli military has raided the main hospital in Gaza’s southern city of Khan Yunis. Charity group, Doctors Without Borders, says an unspecified number of people were killed and injured. Israeli troops stormed Nasser Hospital after laying siege to the facility for days. The hospital also hosted the displaced Palestinians when the Israeli military raided it on Thursday. The regime said it believed the bodies of dead captives were being held inside the facility. Hamas denied that. It said the raid shows the genocidal nature of the Israeli crimes in Gaza. The UN rights office also said the raid appears to be part of Israeli attacks targeting life-saving civilian infrastructure in Gaza, especially hospitals. The office said it has documented similar raids in other parts of Gaza, describing impacts on civilians appalling. Meanwhile, the Palestinian Red Crescent Society says Israeli forces have kidnapped 20 of its staff and patients at Al-Amal, another hospital in Khan Yunis.

Israel airstrike in Lebanon

An Israeli airstrike has hit a house in southern Lebanon amid intense fighting between the regime and the Lebanese resistance movement, Hezbollah. At least three civilians were killed in the attack. A separate Israeli strike on southern Lebanon killed a fighter as well. Also on Wednesday, nearly a dozen people, including six kids, lost their lives in the regime’s strikes targeting Lebanese villages in the south. The latest developments come as the Israeli regime and Hezbollah are engaged in fighting at Lebanon’s southern border areas. The fighting began on October 8, a day after Israel attacked Gaza. Hezbollah says it aims to provide support to Palestinian resistance fighters battling Israel inside Gaza.
